Singapore grindcore trio Wormrot just finished a mini-tour of South East Asia, which included the band's first ever time visiting Thailand and Vietnam, where the band members claim they were forced to play two songs for permit officers prior to the show in order to be approved and allowed to perform. Following the band's return home, Wormrot has written a tour blog to detail recent shows. Some excerpts from the tour blog follow:

"14 Jan 2011 - Johor Bahru, Malaysia. The show in Embrace Hall was fucking awesome. There were some guys from Penang who took a 12 hours train ride just to see Wormrot! That was really touching and we really appreciate their support. Everyone seemed to have fun; moshing, dancing, stage dive, etc...

"15 Jan 2011 - Bangkok, Thailand. It is our first time in Thailand so we didn't know what to expect from the crowd... Turns out to be a killer! Crazy, crazy Thai crowd! There were about 70+ people in total but it seemed like there were 100 people in there. Stomping the stage and dancing like they've been possessed! It was like a Thai Boxing competition!

"16 Jan 2011 - Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. When we reached Ho Chi Minh City Airport at around 9.40am, the Security Police Officers checked our luggage. They would not let us through as we were carrying merchandise, especially CDs. One of them told me that he can let us go IF we gave them 3 of our Abuse CDs as there were 3 officers. We gave them the CDs and that settled everything. Hope they are into Grind coz I figured they might get heart attack when they listen to it.

"Again we did not expect anything much as it was also our 1st time in Vietnam. So, when the crowd went crazy during Wormrot's set, it was really mind-blowing for us as most of them were not Metalheads. Some even brought their kids for goodness sake! But all ended well with everyone being so supportive that there's nothing more we could ask for."
